AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to continuing  the  early
  college  high  school  program  and  the  pathways in technology early
  college high school program in this state; and making an appropriation
  therefor

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  intent.  The  legislature  hereby  finds and
declares it necessary to preserve and continue the New York state  early
college high school program and the New York state pathways in technolo-
gy  early  college  high  school  program (P-TECH program) in this state
which provide various students, including those traditionally  underrep-
resented  in  post-secondary  education,  with the opportunity to access
college-level courses and college degree  credits  at  the  high  school
level  with  the  combined  support of high school and college staff and
resources, and for P-TECH programs, career training and employment in  a
highly skilled job upon completion of the program.
  The  early  college  high  school program not only increases students'
access to  higher  education,  but  also  reduces  potential  costs  for
students  in  completing  college  degrees  by  allowing  them to either
complete a degree upon graduation from high school  or  to  apply  their
earned college credits towards an associate's or baccalaureate's degree.
This  innovative  program provides incentives to high school students to
proceed to college and to earn a college degree  by  accelerating  their
overall  completion  of  a  degree.  It  also  better  prepares them for
college-level coursework, which, will in turn, increase  their  academic
performance. Ultimately, this program increases graduation rates both at
the  high school and college levels, especially for academically at-risk
students.
